Risotto Waits for No OneThink

Our chefs like to say risotto is the perfect dish to make when your in-laws come over for dinner. Why? Because you have an excuse to stay in the kitchen while it cooks!  


Risotto is a rich and creamy northern Italian rice dish that a lot of home cooks shy away from. It does require a good bit of attention, but doesn't take more than a half hour to cook and is best served immediately. The beauty of risotto is once you master the technique, a recipe just isn't necessary.  


There's some debate as to just how long risotto should cook. But as Shelley demonstrates in our latest video, it's really up to your palate.

Risotto featuring butternut squash is one of the stars of our The Great Pumpkin class. While you may crave this vegetable this time of year, Chef Molly can't get enough of it. Seriously, she's in love with it.
